Please join the Church in serving people in your community who are having trouble meeting their basic needs during these uncertain times - people who are coming to our parishes and asking for assistance due to the impact of COVID-19. Your gift will assist pastors in immediately helping families and individuals in the parish community who seek financial assistance to purchase food, pay their rent, fill their prescriptions, or pay utility bills.
A gift of any amount will help our Catholic community in this time of crisis.
Even if you don’t itemize your taxes, because of the new stimulus package passed by Congress, all donations up to $300 for individuals and $600 for married couples to the Emergency Response Fund are treated as an above-the-line tax CREDIT for 2020.
+ All Masses, Parish Activities, & Sacraments are cancelled through Sunday May 3.
In addition to some diocesan parishes live-streaming Sunday Masses , there are several entities providing Mass on the internet. Check the websites regarding whether the Mass is live streamed or available on demand.
